A Decent Life for All by 2030 – Building a Consensus for a new Development Agenda

Brussels, 26-27 November 2013.

EDD 2013 was crucial in helping to shift the perception of development as a poor country problem to a challenge for the entire world to address.

The forum’s outcome was the consensus built towards a bold but realistic agreement to the post-2015 agenda. For the first time, the EDD introduced the brainstorming sessions, enabling stakeholders and participants to work on solutions together and develop proposals to address the challenges they face.

The international community should negotiate the future framework, not as north, south, east, west, poor rich - but as members of one humanity with a common destiny.
Ellen Johnson Sirleaf, President of Liberia
